PARAGON SC-3 SILVER & GLASS KILN

Chamber size is  7.75 x 8 x 7.75 inches
The digital SC-3 kiln fires silver clay, decals, china paint, enameling, and glass in minutes up to 2000°F. The SC-3 is popular with seminar teachers because it fires so fast, plugs into a 120 volt outlet. The SC-2, for a digital kiln, is surprisingly affordable. It fires automatically at the rate and temperature you enter. A large, brightly lit display prompts for firing rate, temperature and hold time. Use the hold feature to automatically soak any type of  silver-clay to its recommended time. The ceramic fiber firing chamber is wrapped in a steel inner case. The outer steel case remains cool due to the layer of air between it and the inner case. In addition, the case is slotted for air circulation. Electrical components, located in the base, stay cool even at extended hold times. The fast-firing element is embedded in the firing chamber shell. The SC-3 heats from the sides and back. Each SC-2 includes a 1/4” thick ceramic fiber shelf.
